Pros:
– Range combat
– Strong 1v1 combat
– High burst damage
– Several DOT skills (claymore trap, poison arrow, falcon assault) [if you guys ever wondered, FA does damage over a time period]
– Traps for tactical usage
– Above average VIT stats

Cons:
– Not so popular AOE skills
– Ranger’s strongest single target skill needs several “layers” of requirement to activate
– As of level 50 cap, you can’t max every good skills without sacrificing others, choice must be made
– Low AGI stats

Basics

1 STR = 2 Attack Power + 2 Parry
1 AGI = 5 Critical + 2 Dodge

1 VIT = 5 HP

HIT – Accuracy
HASTE – Reduces skill cast time and increase general attack speed
VIGOR – Reduces skill cooldown
*You obtain additional hit, haste and vigor from skills and equipments, not from stats

Some samples on skill rotation by Soushii

Before you go to skill build, I would like to tell you that there are different type of Rangers. I call my build, Wind Walker ( because it’s a cool name. lol). My build is focused on attack speed. Which mean you have to focus your cards on damage.

Skill Rotation:

Wind Walk -> Focused Arrow Strike -> Poison Arrow -> Charge Arrow ( till full combo points ) -> Double Strafing ( till there’s no more combo points ) -> Falcon Eyes -> Wind walk -> Focused Arrow Strike -> Poison Arrow -> Charge Arrow ( till full combo points ) -> Double Strafing

OR

Focused Arrow Strike -> Poison Arrow -> Wind Walk -> Charge Arrow ( till full combo points ) -> Double Strafing ( till there’s no more combo points ) -> Falcon Eyes -> Focused Arrow Strike -> Poison Arrow -> Wind Walk -> Charge Arrow ( till full combo points ) -> Double Strafing ( till there’s no more combo points )

Or you can just make your own skill rotation.

My PVE strat: Camouflage — Charge Arrow x2 — Poison Arrow — Windwalk — F. Arrow Strike — DS till 0 conc — Poison Arrow — F. Arrow Strike — Charge x 2 — DS & Vulcan (Repeat)

Mini Boss: Camouflage — Set Traps and move back — Charge Arrow x2 — Poison Arrow — Windwalk — Falcon — True — Falcon — Traps — Charge Arrow x2 — Poison Arrow — Windwalk — F. Arrow Strike — DS till O conc — Poison Arrow — F. Arrow Strike — Charge x 2 — DS & Vulcan (Repeat)

Boss: Camouflage — Charge Arrow x2 — Poison Arrow — Windwalk — Falcon — True — Falcon — F. Arrow Strike –Charge Arrow x2 — DS & Vulcan (Repeat)

PvP vs Range: Countdown: Windwalk, Camouflage- Charge Arrow x2 — Poison Arrow –Falcon — True — Falcon — DS — and spam Poison/F.Arrow Strike to get Main Ranger and go for the kill.
If he have a higher DPS than you do the same except you kite with arrow impact and acrobatic after your 2 Falcons. Also you might want to move to the opposite direction your opponent is facing (while hiding) before starting your onslaught.

PvP vs Melee (non hiders): Countdown: Camouflage and set traps — move 2 steps away for you traps and start shooting 2x Charge + Poison — Falcon — True — Falcon — Trap again — spam Poison/F.Arrow Strike to get Main Ranger and go for the kill.

PvP vs Melee (hiders): Countdown: Camouflage and get your fingers ready on either Multi Shot or Arrow Shower on his general location (it will break his invisibility) — set traps – Falcon — True — Falcon — Trap Again– Charge x2 — spam Poison/F.Arrow Strike to get Main Ranger and go for the kill.
